I am health inequalities lead for the department of primary care and currently run three  speciality choice modules in health inequalities, career options and medical education. 

These involve placements in prison, homeless clinics, drug and alcohol clinics as well in journalism, industry and at the BBC and guiding the students through educational projects.

I have been involved in teaching undergraduates at Imperial since 2001 and enjoy creating new teaching methods, assessments  and modules.

With a colleague I run the monthly Medical education research unit meetings for teaching faculty.

Integrating arts in teaching is an area that I love being involved in, see our recent blog;

My masters in medical education was obtained here at Imperial, my project was on the impact of role models in professional identity dissonance.

Recently I chaired a thematic review group as apart of the for the curriculum review and am passionate about good community undergraduate teaching and improving the undergraduate medical student experience.

I received an Imperial college President's award for teaching in 2017
